Drupalcon Chicago 2011 - Creating an Online Community the Open Source Way


Publication date 2011-03-10
Language en
Many people are familiar with open source communities and the open source development model. The success of open source is based on the principles of sharing, collaboration, transparency, meritocracy, rapid prototyping, and others. This session uses opensource.com as a case study to explore the ways the website went from an idea to a growing community. The different elements needed to achieve this include a content management system, compelling content, and community participation. The components of Drupal being used on the site will be highlighted, but the main focus is around our successes and failures in community building and fostering participation via social media and traditional methods.
